MEF/ASU Band Camp will provide band students a world-class, intensive, motivating and fun camp experience on the ASU campus in Tempe. The instructors for the camp include ASU School of Music faculty and graduate students, Phoenix Symphony personnel, talented and well respected secondary school band directors and outstanding community private instructors. Campers will be divided into two or more concert bands through a simple and friendly audition process on the first day of camp. Campers' activities each day will include three hours of large band ensemble rehearsal, a one hour sectional, a one hour elective class, attendance at a one hour masterclass or faculty recital, lunch and a social activity that promotes teamwork and camaraderie. Friday's student performance, at 5:00pm in the ASU Evelyn Smith Music Theatre, will feature the camp concert bands and chamber ensembles. Friday's camp hours are 8:30am-7:00pm. Volunteer positions for exceptional 11th and 12th graders are available.
